    Prime fitness Trap Bar

    Hi folks,

    i have been lurking at the new Prime fitness trap bar since it was released back in september. It has the options of regular handles, kaz handles (cone fat grip) and rot-8 handles (their perfect grip). Finally, today, after a week of deliberation, i have finally pulled the trigger and i have also added all grips available. It is selling for way more than i wanted to pay as it is over 1000$ but it seems like the top of the line trap bar. Adjustable height, open trap bar.... can’t wait to try it out. I will keep you guys updated!

    I have also ordered a set of Kaz handles cable attachment to my order

    Priced too high I think. $1000 is way outta my range, highest i'd go is 3 or 4 hundred considering many of the trap bars i've looked at haven't been much higher than $150. Sure looks like a nice bar though.

    It all depends on what you are looking for. There is cheap barbells for less than 100$ but there is also some ivanko barbell that are selling for 600$-1000$. There is something for any budget. But i think it is a lot of $ too but it is something like nothing else

    Of all the recent open trap bar designs I like how they've included the option of adjusting the handle height. Unlike the squat where you can go as low as your body allows, I've never been able to deadlift from the ground, so at least they've thought of those with this issue.

    These are rickshaw bars and they're really good. Perfect for farmers walk too because in the event of falling over with a heavy load, it's not so disastrous. It'd be nice to see a review on that one.

    I received the my new Prime Fitness trap bar with the 3 different handles today. First the packaging was perfect, the bar is in perfect shape.

    It is the most amazing, well built, quality specialty bar i have ever put my eyes on. It is on an another level of wellness, definitely worth to price. I will do an in depth review and compare it to my Rogue tb-1 very soon....

    Congrats! Nice pics and nice bar, though for $1k I'm still out - though that applies to any bar priced that high. If I was wealthier, who knows.

    Congratulations, if that bar works as well as it looks, then you have something special.

    Look forward to your review. Reps on spread.

    I'm generally meh on tap bars but this is admittedly awesome. Very versatile. Super high quality and appears to be everything one could ever ask for and well executed. Appreciate the share.

    Yo Alex, nice Inspector Gadget trapbar you got there! I'm sure you're gonna be the minority of home gym consumers to have one of those at that price, however between the versatility and the looks of the build quality it seems highly justified. Congrats on the new toy.

    Honestly it is the most amazing piece of equipment I have ever added to my gym. It is so well built and so versatile. Can’t wait to do a more in depth review and to compare it to a regular Rogue TB-1. The price point is high you are right but there are a lot of us that are paying 600-700$ for a kabuki transformer bar that rusts 4 months after buying it a or for a top of the line barbell like an Ivanko, Kabuki, eleiko ect.

    There aren't a "lot" of people buying Kabuki. A lot of people buy Rogue, Kabuki is much more boutique by comparison.

    Where’s the review??

    I’m looking at Kabuki and this one. How’s the adjustable height? Durable? Thanks.
